The Women's Tennis Association tanks Venus Williams in the number one slot when it comes to games played by singles for about 11 weeks. But she came to occupy the prime slot in 2002 when she was the first American of black race to get to the top.
She even went on to get the Olympic medal on four different occasions. She even won the Grand Slam title on seven different occasions. She and her sister, Serena, have several doubles championships to their credit. She has been declared a champion at the Wimbledon on five different occasions.
The style of service adopted by Venus Williams turned out to be a lethal weapon in her hands. By the time she was 10 years old, the service speed exceeded 100 miles an hour. She had a bout of successes following her first win in October 1994. Her success in the field brought her laurels along with a contract with Reebok worth $40 million.
Williams bagged the gold medal for winning the singles competition at the 2000 Olympic Games organised in Sydney, Australia. She bagged another medal with her sister, Serena, playing out a double tournament.
The year 2006 was not very eventful for the lady because of an injury to her wrist, but she bounced back in 2007 emerging victorious at the singles at Wimbledon. The Williams sisters made a daunting team when they competed for the doubles title at the 2008 Olympic Games held in Beijing. There were several other medals and awards down the line waiting for Williams.
In the real world, Williams initiated a clothing line, Eleven. An indigenous interior design company, V*Starr Interiors, is busy with decorating houses and homes all over the country.
